Rest up in the onsite cafe, serving an array of French dishes with a distinctly Japanese twist.

  • I went for the first time. Stars like Mr. Prince is very satisfied with the accommodation. I've seen and like in the countryside of France, without knowing the story just atmosphere (? ) But can be enjoyed and felt the Prince world and be a little boring, but I think I enjoy go... knowing story. I have become a place soaked with the exhibition and the content of the story is, as well as Museum kids and adults to enjoy a lot and think life could come out of your appearance. You can feel his life itself, has many exhibits on the author, Saint Exupery. Is a restaurant serving simple Café and dining to shopping, had lunch in the restaurant. Went with girls in elementary school, but can satisfy both adults and children with very affordable price was recommended. A little surprise within the Chinese language often heard... the continent for so many families in Taiwan who do not know, but, I was surprised. It will continue to Hakone where many tourists from overseas. And the notes come in a bus with your child, etc.! Being jostled on the bus from Hakone-Yumoto (will ride pretty ^ ^;) may take up to 30 minutes, so before the ride as much as possible noted food and juices are good. Sickness bring is good because it has to reverse in a plastic bag that brought blame violently rocked by a friend's daughter... even adults motion sickness are anxious may be.

  • A place where the builder tried to reproduce all characters, scenario and things. It is a good place to explore with kids, but I expect more...perhaps the Little Prince is unique to me and none can reproduce...
  • Great Museum, a lot of history about the book and how it was created.
  • This museum is so fantastic! I love Le Petit Prince so this museum taught me more about the author and I got some great photo opportunities. I definitely suggest going here! I went to Hakone just to see this museum and it was worth the day trip!
  • Cute little museum with great architecture that makes you feel like you're in France!
  • Doesn't look like a shabby museum but unless you understand Japanese, it will be a waste of time

A getaway close to the capital, Hakone-machi offers a good range of accommodations, with a particular emphasis on luxury and upmarket hotels. Spa resort-style hotels, often with extensive views of the iconic volcano, sit in the main tourist areas, with their spa facilities using naturally warmed waters from the hot springs around the area. The more densely populated areas to the east house a good number of simple guesthouses and hostels. Staying in Tokyo and taking day trips remains an option for many visitors.
